Love2
Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love is one of the smartest players in the league and that was on display in a game against Golden State. During the third quarter of that game Love found himself caught in midair trying to shot a jump shot. So instead of firing up a bad shot Love fired a pass off the back of teammate Greg Steimsma. Love then got the ball back and drew a foul on Carl Landry. Last night the Brooklyn Nets destroyed the Boston Celtics 95-83. In that game Joe Johnson had a crossover that just made Paul Pierce look silly. Check it out below.
